The reasons behind why math geniuses dislike literature and literary people hate math are in relation to one other? I do. And I think I’ve found probable evidence as to why it is what it is. And that is me. I am the evidence.
I told you about my summer classes on General Statistics and how it is such a hard time for me. And lately, I’ve come up with a simple realization that maybe the reason why I hate math in general is that I hate following rules. I hate equations. I hate formulas. Because I think leading a life doesn’t have to have rules, equations and certain formulas. Compared to writing poetry and stories, we don’t, most of the time, have to follow rules. Most of the time we go against the flow. Most of the time, the unseen spirit and the God of muse are the ones leading us to writing what the deepest secrets in our hearts tell us.
Now I’m not generalizing math and literature freaks, it’s just my observation. Like the nature of balance. If someone’s good in math, they probably don’t do that well in Language and vice versa.
But perhaps I could be wrong though. If you have a different/similar view regarding the matter, comment below. I’d like to know your thoughts. 😉
